If Tiger is announced today and assuming they're updating the store at the usual time, I'd say the countdown now stands at T-3 hours.

I hope its today too

I can stand the anticipa.............................tion (think Dr. Frank N Furter for how to say that).

Every day there's new evidence that it will appear on Friday, then Monday now Tuesday (usual day for new announcements). :confused:

In addition .mac has been up and down like a yo-yo lately. According to MacOsRumors Tiger will bring a few .mac additions too.

So will it be today? I hope so, but time will tell.

P.S. Also looking forward to updated iMacs too. :p

We'll find out in the next half hour if something is coming. If so, non-US stores will go down within the next 30 minutes! At this time, they're still online though. But that doesn't mean anything as the usually go down after 1pm CET (it's now 12.58 pm). BTW, European stores were offline last night, probably for maintenance. However, they might also have prepared something for the big launch. Let's wait and see :)

My guess is that Apple will announce Tiger today around 08:00h to 10:00h Pacific Time (+08:00 GMT). Any other guesses?

If they followed their usual pattern, they would announce within the next hour or so. Panther was announced about an hour later than hardware, though.

Looks like its not today. It seems more and more likely that the April 1 "leak" was phony -- a shot across the bow at thinksecret and appleinsider and this site. Too bad. :(

Yeah but today isnt april 1st. Today is "early" april. It isnt like anything can be done to change it; it has gone GM. So either they release it now or a bit later, but with a bit later they will loose precious days of advertising. I really do believe that it will be released to buy on the 15th/16th(whenever NAB starts), so for apple it would have to be the sooner the better, but then again apple has always surprised us with some strange things....eg Powermac Shippping dates.

I really hope you are right; but as of now (9:04 AM on the 5th) I dont know that we even have reliable info that Tiger has actually gone gold-- all of the stories that I saw had the "gone gold" were stated in conjunction with the April 1 announcement.

Wouldnt it be released at 9:00 AM cupertino time(not sure which Time zone) that is only happening in 3 hours. This is usually the time that apple releases new products in my memory.

I'm pretty sure if anything is going to be announced today it won't be until 9.00am or 10.00am Cupertino time. 5.00pm or 6.00pm UK(GMT) time.

I agree, if it gets to be after noon Cupertino time and no announcement then I don't think this is going to happen anytime soon (as in not this week at least).

That's what I remember too. 12:00 or so Eastern time, with the store going down at 11:00. So I'm remaining hopeful.

C'mon. At least update the 1.25Ghz eMacs to 1.33. That'd get me through the day.

I agree with this. If it has gone gold master, wouldn't Apple say so?

And if they don't announce it today then it is not coming before NAB because Apple will want more than 10 days between their announcement date and the date that Tiger is in stores (unless they will announce it the day it is in stores -- they'd pick up more impulse buyers that way). They could however announce it at the NAB conference which could be the first day that it is in stores. If it is not announced today then a NAB Tiger announcement is what I will be looking for.

Come on Apple update your site today. I want to familiarize myself with all of the great new Tiger features so I will know what to experiment with as soon as I install Tiger on my iBook.
